>> brent: hats off to lamichael james. you know? tough night. not taking the rest of it off. had some cramps. came back. returned punts. broke the career rushing record. that's incomplete from darron. there are the stats tonight. 54 yards. and a touchdown. so, auburn and lsu, they are shutting down. there is the catch and the pass in the middle. out to the 40 yard line. >> kirk: if there's anything for the pac-12 teams to learn. you don't have a lot of defensive linemen in the pac-12, the way you did with lsu and auburn last year. but you have to commit to the line of scrimmage and the running game and take your chances with darron thpassing a. it's not like the pac-12 hasn't tried that in the past. that's what they're trying to do this year.
11:31 pm
another's more about the receivers. jeff mail's not lined up there. but they have to come on with their route running to help thomas and james in the backfield, if oregon's going to turn it around and get things going. they're not going to play another defense close to what they played tonight. >> brent: they did not. the ducks, who we're talking about. is he going to pick it up? the clock will stop. and a nifty little run. i can't tell you how much i admire james, who keeps on battling here, with time running down. want to go back to the defense. only one turnover tonight. and it was just a blunder on the part of lsu. the quarterback was walking to call time-out. and the center snapped the ball past him. and the ducks recovered the loose ball and gets the field goal after that. go back to the auburn game. they forced the fumble late. there were issues forced by that defense.
11:32 pm
cliff harris, suspended. one of the big differences with oregon. we did see turnovers. >> kirk: going back to the championship game. darron thomas, career high in pass attempts. had 40 against auburn. and he broke that tonight because he had to throw the football 52 times against another powerful s.e.c. defense. could be fun to watch lsu continue to move and grow. spread the offensive coordinator, coach stud, really, i thought, early in the game, they were feeling their way. but give them credit. the numbers aren't crazy. 275 yards. 98 yards passing. when they sense blood in the water. there he is in the middle. and steve kragthorpe off to the right. >> brent: he was the offensive coordinator. then, struck with parkinson's disease. now, he's the quarterbacks coach. he has worked with jarrett lee. it's good to see him back on the field.
11:33 pm
and coach stud on the left-hand side. he's a veteran offensive line coach. they did a good job up there. >> kirk: they did. and steve has done so much, for. he called at bowling green. and he left to go to utah. >> brent: first down and goal. there's david paulson. so, the ducks, trying to get another touchdown here, in the final 22 seconds of the ball game. and the freshman's first touchdown. de'anthony thomas, number 6. and what a career he figures to have up in eugene. out of crenshaw high school. there was a verbal commitment to usc. he went to eugene. he liked the teammates and the coaches. when he gets stronger, he won't be fumbling the ball like that. they won't be knocking it out of his hands. he'll get stronger.
11:34 pm
it will be a much stronger grip on the football. one of those unfortunate things. now, he has his first touchdown. >> kirk: not only that. but the drive. the drive in this game. you're down. the game's over. and it's easy to just shut it down and say, you know what? it doesn't really matter. what do they care if we score or not? the first game of the season. a head coach is looking for more than just execution. a head coach is looking at heart. who is going to compete? even though this game is over, who wants to continue to compete? that time the offense competed down the field. >> brent: i see oklahoma and alabama staying there, one, two. and lsu would climb to three. and boise state and florida state. you tell me. >> kirk: i think you're going to see lsu move up. probably up to three. boise state, if they're able to hold on and secure a victory, against georgia, they're going to be there around four.
11:35 pm
you said it earlier. we've been talking a lot in the preseason, if boise state got by georgia, they'll be favored the rest of the year. the big issue will be, if they run the table, they'll be favored in every game. and alabama and oklahoma and lsu lose down the road, undefeated boise. we get into this debate every year. >> brent: it's final. >> kirk: it's over. undefeated boise down the road, they're going to be the team that everybody will be wondering, can they create the controversy for the bcs? >> brent: they could be the ultimate bcs buster. they up -- kellen moore, another outstanding quarterback. >> kirk: think he had four incompletions tonight. >> brent: the onside kick. one thing that utah state will practice, after an onside kick, don't wait for it to come to you. and randle did just that for lsu. that will do it. the tigers, prevail here. got 12 seconds left.
11:36 pm
they bring the offense out for one, final snap. they will get in the victory formation. and the hat has done it again. that's the peak in that cap that les miles wears. that's how he got that nickname. you look at his record, folks. one word will describe him. underrated. we make fun sof the time management problems and chewing grass on the sideline. but les miles does a heck of a job of coaching. and he did here. getting his team ready after that distraction. shake hands. mathieu with the big forced fumble on the punt. let's check in with erin andrews. >> erin: if you told us what
11:37 pm
you've been through, an exhausting couple of weeks. with everything that went on off the field with your team, you play your backup as the starter tonight, in a national championship setting. how do you put this into words? >> our football teams united. they play together. you put a ball on a line. they'll scrap you for it. it's a great group of guys. >> erin: you told me before the game, you wanted just to have fun. and stay calm. when did you notice he was doing that? >> well, i think he did the things we needed to do to win. and he makes the plays that we really need to have him. so, it's all progress. all a process that he'll have to go through. he played better today. >> erin: and the defense really did some things that you like. what was the key in finally getting through to oregon's tempo? >> to me, we played within an intensity that started the first play and ended the last play. and i challenged them, as did
11:38 pm
our defensive staff. john chavis did a great job. but we asked them to be ready. and ready was a big word. and you know, they ran a tempo offense. it's a fast pace. and the reality is, we were ready. >> erin: you were,much. and jarrett, you've been through so much the past couple weeks. also in your career here at lsu. put tonight in words. >> it was just -- you know, it was a great win for us. we knew we had a lot on our -- a lot on our minds coming into this game. we knew we had to stay focused. we played hard. we ran the ball well. we stayed focus. they're a great football team. give credit to them. but we played hard and got the "w." >> erin: appreciate it. thanks for your time. >> thank you. >> brent: erin, thank you very much. and, herbie, your final thought on this win by lsu? >> kirk: it's been a long time since we saw the two top-five teams play in the opening
11:39 pm
weekend. there's a lot at stake here. with the bcs, that's the way it set up. lsu prevailed. and the battle at the line of scrimmage. and jarrett lee. he did what he had to do. he managed the game. made smart decisions and avoided the big mistakes. and put himself in position to win. you look back at the third quarter when lsu got after the true freshman, de'anthony thomas and forced two turnovers. >> brent: congratulations to both schools playing a game like this to start the season with so much on the line. lsu beats oregon, 40-27. next saturday on college football primetime, espn at 8:00 eastern, we'll go to ann arbor. michigan takes on notre dame. won't that be something? thanks for watching espn on abc. now, we take you to the studio for the ford wrap-up. and here's robert flores. take it away, robert. brent, thanks. for the third-consecutive season, boise state opened their
